I made it safely to ABQ. It was a pretty uneventful trip to ABQ. The plane was late by 10 minutes. The reason...so many planes arriving and departing LAX. My bear met me near the security checkpoint. I seriously took advantage of the 3 checked bag limit and the 2 carry-on bags. Well 3 if you count my purse which did fit nicely in my backpack. So I ended up bringing lots of stuff with me. A lot of Christmas goodness for my bear. The bad part of the trip was baggage claim in ABQ. I think sabotlours should get a paycheck from Southwest. Luggage kept pouring out of the carousals and none of the flights corresponded to the carousal racks. Sabot announced one flight luggage was on another rack. Then we managed to find my luggage and escaped. We had a nice dinner at Mimi's Cafe then headed back to the Bear Den. I gave Sabot his presents. Most of it was in one suitcase so it was fun to see him unpack it. Then we got in nice snuggles and fell asleep soon. Sabot called in sick this morning so we had a nice, lazy morning. I think I have a start of a cold but my bear made me tea and toast and now I feel a bit better. I am staying in today to rest and recover so we can enjoy the rest of the week and most importantly the ballet on Thursday, Sabot and tenax and I, are going to see the Nutcracker and Christmas Eve and of course Christmas. It should be fun!!!
